Why doesn't Fbackup delete files and folders from target folder that have been deleted from the source folder. I read that only deleted files and folders are removed from the target folder ONLY if another change has been made in the source folder ? isn't a deletion a change??

The backup is executed only if there is at least one new or modified file. If you just delete some files, no new backup can be created in destination. That is why the backup does not run and the removed files are not yet deleted.
